TISI Shared Corporate Responsibilities & Values
What is TISI doing? (The Good)
TISI consciously restricts its consumption of water, and will not generate large volumes of CO2 emissions. We do not process foods or its waste, nor does it create large amounts of landfill. We maintain a small, secure & well-insulated environment in order to keep its heating and cooling needs to a minimum. We think carefully when purchasing business equipment and we limit our use to essentials only. All equipment is turned off when not in use. TISI runs a mostly paper free business environment and we constantly search for greener and better options which are recyclable. We are committed to reducing our impact on the planet.
What can TISI work to improve? (The Bad)
TISI is an online business and we are aware of the impact we have on the planet. We are aware that *monthly searches processed by Google globally, produce 260.000kg of CO2 which is equal to powering a freezer for 5,400 years!! Clearly, TISI uses the internet for its business activities, and people use the internet to find and connect with us. Should there be a better way for us to connect to the world of business, we will action it.

What we commit to getting better at: (The Ugly)
TISI will do our absolute best to ensure that our security systems are up to date and we will NEVER knowingly spam anyone. As a web based business TISI receives considerable spam, which we report and delete the moment it arrives. We commit to remaining vigilant in staying educated with regard to anything we can do to lessen our impact on the planet and welcomes feedback from our members and the public with ideas of how to do so.
TISI Shared Community Responsibility & Values
In support of our doctrine that “people are much more interested in how much we care than in how much we know, and that the relationship is always more important than the sale”, we choose to gift 10% of all paid memberships to four autonomously selected charities which we believe collectively represent the needs of the worlds most underprivileged and deprived.
We encourage our members to support charities like Amnesty International, Planet Ark, UNICEF and WWF.
